After two sluggish games to start the season, Jermaine O’Neal – playing with torn cartilage in his left wrist – is getting the night off against the New York Knicks. Rookie Luke Harangody is active for the first time this season in three games.
O’Neal was just 1-for-5 in the first two games, scoring just three points. Harangody, drafted in the second round (52nd overall) last June out of Notre Dame, was named to the AirTran Airways All-Summer League first team after averaging 16.6 points and 6.8 rebounds in July.
The Celtics will stick with the same starting lineup of Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo, Shaquille O’Neal, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett as they look to bounce back over .500 against New York.
